After the Federal Council’s decision: How to plan the football and hockey league

On Wednesday, the Federal Council decided that the ban on major events would be extended by a month until the end of September. After that, more than 1000 people are again allowed to take part in events – but only with an approved protection concept.

What happens now? Federal Councilor Alain Berset described the timetable as “very sporty”. An ordinance must be drawn up and passed by the Federal Council by September 2nd. To this end, a working group headed by Berset’s Department of the Interior (EDI) is being formed from representatives from the cantons as well as from sports and culture. The ordinance then serves as a template for the cantons. For the football and hockey leagues, however, it is very important that the clubs have equal opportunities, even if the cantons have the last word.
